By the way, I've found no grammatical or other errors in this book, which I always appreciate. Karen Lenfestey is an indie author who writes "happy endings with a twist." I've also read Made for Two (A Romance Novella) by this author, and I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.
The aspect of a teenage mother giving her daughter away and the regrets she has later in life is very interesting. But once again I think that she is judged too harshly and it is not clear if the author is also condemning her.
I do not buy the love story, I would have preferred if they remained friends and Beth found love in someone else, or made it work with Drew. I felt awful for Emma. I hope that there is a resolution of this story in following books, but I don’t think that I will buy them. A lot of the conflicts happen due to a lack of communication, not because there is a real issue (or if the issue had been communicated correctly, it would have been solved). It did seem a little contrived.
The book is well written and grammatically correct with no obvious plot holes, so I appreciate that.
Best friend Sarah seemed a little too perfect. Boyfriend Drew was a flat character. Ivy was almost written as if she were an evil, red lipstick wearing villain. Beth's parents were supposed to have factored heavily in main character Beth's decision making process, but they only make a cameo appearance.
If you're looking for a cozy read, this book might fit. I did take a star off of my rating due to lack of character development, but I almost took off two. There is some mild language, but not an excessive amount. This book would be appropriate for adults, maybe a little boring for teens. It seemed geared towards a thirty-something crowd. The main characters are in "transition."
The quote by the author's name states: "Karen examines the complicated relationships between husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, and of course, mothers and their children". I agree totally with that quote. This book gives you an insight into the lives of several people that are leading their less than perfect lives and the struggles they face daily. It was an emotional journey.
